The passion and chemistry are at an all-time high in the behind-the-scenes footage that singer and songwriter Maluma recently posted for Marry Me, his upcoming romantic dramedy starring him, and fellow musician and actress, Jennifer López.
Maluma wrote on his Instagram post, “I still can’t believe my first time acting in a movie is alongside [Jennifer López] and Owen Wilson. Dreams are never too big for someone brave and fighting. THANK YOU!!!”
In the behind-the-scenes clips, J.Lo and Maluma are seen meeting each other on the movie set dressed to the nines – J.Lo in a form-fitting white dress with feathery sleeves, a silver snake armband, and a beaded headpiece, and Maluma in a stylish off-white tuxedo.
The two exchange pleasantries: “You look beautiful,” Maluma tells J.Lo. She responds with, “You too. You’re pretty.” Maluma puts his head on her shoulder and smiles.
“There is an excitement to these relationships,” J.Lo says during the clip. “There’s something super exciting and feels new about it.”
In Marry Me, J.Lo and Maluma play Kat Valdez and Bastian, a celebrity power couple in the music industry whose relationship ends when Kat finds out that he has cheated on her. Impulsively, she instead decides to marry a divorced high school math teacher (Owen Wilson) who is holding up a “Marry Me” sign at one of her concerts.
During the clips, audiences get a look at the couple laughing during production, looking into each other’s eyes, posing for photos, sharing hugs, dancing and, of course, singing a duet together on stage. After one scene on the red carpet, J.Lo refers to Maluma as a “rock star” and Maluma calls her a “beautiful star.”
Maluma ends the video by telling his fans “besos,” while J.Lo adds, “Los quiero.”
Marry Me debuts at theaters and on Peacock on February 11. The soundtrack for the film will be available on February 4.
